Pace's Taxi Access Program (TAP) allows ADA Paratransit eligible riders immediate access to a Chicago taxi to meet their transportation needs, as an alternative to riding ADA Paratransit. To use TAP, you must be certified for ADA Paratransit by the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) and you must have an active TAP card to purchase TAP rides.
TAP can be a great way to travel for last-minute plans. Unlike ADA Paratransit, there's no need to reserve a trip a day in advance. You can call or hail a taxi at your convenience. For a list of taxi providers, please call 311. Taxicab drivers are independent contractors and do not work for Pace nor the City of Chicago.
TAP FARE REINSTATED:
Pace has waived the $3 City of Chicago Taxi Access Program (TAP) fare since March 23, 2020. As part of the 2023 budget, Pace will reinstate a reduced TAP fare of $2.00 beginning April 15, 2023.
Riders are required to swipe their TAP card at the end of their trip and are limited to 8 one way trips a day. Riders are responsible for any taxi fare amount over $30 and additional taxi surcharges.
